Director: Milind Ukey
Rating: 5/10

Is Paathshaala a must-watch movie? You can tell by the cast, as Shahid Kapoor, Nana Patekar, Ayesha Takia and Amir Khan all shine in this comedy-drama. Let’s also take a look at the storyline and characters. In this Paathshaala Movie Review, we’ll discuss the film’s characters and storyline, and see if it’s worth watching.


Shahid Kapoor

Paathshaala is a film about the education system in India and how it affects the lives of children. Though Shahid Kapoor plays a small role, his versatility and intelligence make him a good choice for this role. The film has a few flaws, however. Shahid’s over-eager parents will be left disappointed by the movie.

The movie has an uneven plot and too many characters. Nana Patekar, who plays a classmate, does an average job, and Shahid Kapoor has a special appearance role. However, his presence is felt throughout the movie. Although the film has a romantic image, it lacks a strong romantic track. Shahid Kapoor often goes overboard in certain scenes.

Nana Patekar

Nana Patekar’s latest movie has garnered the most positive response from the audience, despite some flaws. It is a film about the importance of education, but there is a bit too much hype surrounding it and its overeager parents. Nevertheless, Paathshaala is an entertaining film that manages to make a good message.

Though the film doesn’t boast of special effects, it does have a decent soundtrack. Music director Hanif Sheikh is responsible for both the BG and lyrics. The school setting looks artificial from the very first frame. Open skies don’t help the situation. Dialogues also don’t pack a punch, save for Nana Patekar’s. Unfortunately, Paathshaala fails to meet expectations and will not be worth a trip to the cinema.

Ayesha Takia

Ayesha Takia’s Paatshaala is a teeming and moving film about the importance of education for girls. Although this film is a reformist one, it is not without its preachiness and it could easily lose its viewers. However, if you’re looking for a movie to cheer up your tired soul, Paatshaala may be the right pick for you.

The film has an excellent cast, led by Ayesha Takia. The film also stars Sushant Singh, Nana Patekar, Anjana Srivastave, and Saurabh Shukla. While Takia shines, Sushmita Mukherjee and Anjana Srivastave are mostly insignificant. Saurabh Shukla, who plays a loud-mouthed manager, does pass muster, but he’s nowhere near as good as the lead.


Paathshaala is a Hindi film directed by Rajkumar Hirani. It deals with several issues that children face in today’s world. It also brings to light the immoral practices in schools. Moreover, this movie is a good example of the deterioration of the teaching profession in India. Profit and rivalry have overshadowed the need for moral education.

The film follows a group of schoolchildren. One of them is a sports teacher, Vijendra Chauhan, who disapproves of the new government schemes that burden the students. However, he stands by Rahul Prakash Udyavar, who is an outcast in the school. The film also stars Nana Patekar, Shahid Kapoor, and Ayesha Takia.


The screenplay of Paathshaala is a mismatch of the film’s concept and execution. While the movie attempts to tackle the problem of commercialization of education, the story is bland and lacks the necessary interest to engage the audience. This is due to the scattered screenplay. This largely reduces the impact of the movie. Despite its noble message, Paathshaala is an unimpressive movie that falls short of meeting the expectations of its audience.

The movie tries to answer many questions about today’s education system and its ramifications for society. It tries to explore how high morals have fallen by the wayside in favor of profit. It also exposes unethical practices in the media. Those involved in the film’s production must attend the film’s Paathshaala. While the film is an entertaining experience, it isn’t very good at its goal of raising awareness about the issue.
